Garden eye candy

It struck me today how beautiful morning glories are. I love this heavenly blue color, they make me happy each morning to see what new ones have opened. A few years ago I saw a farmhouse back home that had on side covered in them vining up strings, maybe I'll have to try that next year.

Trip home to Portland, Ontario

Ryan and I took a trip home for a few days to see my Mom and Tom. These pictures are at my Mom's pretty shop which they live above right on the lake. I'm kicking myself that I didn't get more pictures of the lake, it is so beautiful.
We had a funfilled time, Ryan loved fishing down at the dock and was there nearly the whole time we were there. Grandpa Tom took him on his very cool huge 4 wheeler and also tubing on the boat. We also got the chance to see my cousins and there families which was really great. Life is at a different pace in Portland, a pace I could certainly get used to.

There's something about Mary on my blog!

1.I'll respond with something random I like about you.
Your great sense of humor and amazing creative ability.
2. I'll tell you what song/movie/recipe reminds me of you.
You are Raiders of the Lost Ark, you live for adventure, fortune-hunting, and danger. I took a movie quiz for you and tried to answer the question like I thought you would, ha ha.
3. I'll name something we should do together.
Rhinebeck all the way baby!
4. I'll say something that only makes sense to you and me (or just me).
We could get along just fine without them, that’s how we feel at times, eh! (S & S)
5. I'll tell you my first/clearest memory of you - that I remember
You and your sister at Molten Java having a great time crafting with a then small group of women, while I was with the “other” knitting group.
6. I'll leave you a quote that is somehow appropriate to you.
The universe will reward you for taking risks on its behalf.
Shakti Gawain
7. I'll ask you something that I've always wondered about you.
Who inspired your creativity, and how do you get your best ideas?
8. If I do this for you, you must post this on your journal so you can do the same for other people. [Really, I don't care if you post it or not.]
